This intersection is being upgraded to a DDI (the first in Canada) as part of a massive road project:

I'm really glad I get to do 47; I got to know this highway intimately as it's the road I took to college, back and forth all the time.

The "d"s in Edenwold are backward "b"s.

I saw that quite a bit while I was there. el's and "d"'s  were switched around the most. Newer signs are Clearview and don't have that problem.

Outstanding photo. White post and everything. Thanks for posting that.

The challenge is to post a road sign photo (actual image, no GSV)

So those of us who don't have extensive collections of signs aren't allowed to participate. I'd say that's jerky.

I don't have any large collections of sign photos, so I'm going to use photos from Steve Alp's site (all credit to him):


Last time I checked, it never said the photo had to be yours. If it does, well I guess I can't participate.

I know I'm being anal about this, but everything you need to know is in the OP. You can post my pictures if you want, I don't mind (nothing against the rules). I have a 58 picture if you want to participate.

55 was already posted above by Vdeane. I only have 2 pictures of American highway signs.

Next number should be 58.
